Calling All Kids!

Throughout October, children 11 years and younger receive free admission—no ticket is required when accompanied by an adult with a valid form of admission.

One adult with a valid form of admission can bring up to 5 children (ages 11 and younger) free all month long. For more information, see our FAQs.

Check out our 101 Things to Discover at the Zoo, Safari Park, and in Your Own Backyard.

It's a great time of year for kids to enjoy the wonders of nature and discover wildlife of all sizes, shapes, and types. There's so much to experience within the Zoo's 100 acres—join the fun! Bring your wild ones to meet ours during Kids Free presented by Mission Fed!
